Baltimore Orioles 2B Steve Pearce is starting in left field and batting sixth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Tuesday, Aug. 25. OF Henry Urrutia is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Pearce ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has a single pinch-hit appearance since going on the disabled list with an oblique injury Saturday, July 18. You'll likely want to let him shake off some rust before trusting him in any fantasy format, but especially at FantasyScore. Urrutia ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is 9-for-33 with three runs and six RBI through his first nine games. He'll receive occasional duty in the outfield as long as he is handling the bat alright, so he warrants a roster spot in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Baltimore Orioles OF Henry Urrutia took batting practice with the Orioles Friday, Aug. 14, and he will be officially recalled from Class AAA Norfolk Saturday, Aug. 15.
Fantasy Tip: Urrutia has a .292/.344/.414 slash line with 56 runs, 10 home runs and 50 RBI over 107 games with Norfolk this season. While he could be worth a speculative add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, it is likely wise to wait for a clearer picture of how he will be utilized by the Orioles. Check back for updates.

Baltimore Orioles OF Henry Urrutia could be recalled from Class AAA Norfolk for the game against the Oakland Athletics Friday, Aug. 14, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: The 28-year-old outfielder had 58 plate appearances at the majors in 2013, but otherwise has spent eight seasons in the minors. He has a .292/.344/.414 slash line with 56 runs, 10 home runs and 50 RBI over 107 games with Norfolk this season and could be worth a speculative add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. There might not be many at-bats for him, though. Take a wait-and-see approach in the majority of formats.

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis is a long-shot candidate to be moved to right field for the upcoming season. Alejandro De Aza and Steve Pearce are currently projected to be the team's starting corner outfielders, with Dariel Alvarez, David Lough and Henry Urrutia also in the mix. If Davis is moved to right field, Pearce and Christian Walker would likely to split time at first base.
